National Recruitment Campaign

National Recruitment Campaign!

The Department of Health and Social Care have launched a national recruitment campaign for social care called ‘Every day is different when you care’.

The campaign aim is simple – to encourage more people to apply to work in adult social care by:

  • Raising awareness of the variety of job roles and opportunities available
  • Changing what people think about working in the sector
  • Increasing consideration and intention amongst individuals with the right values, and who might be looking for a new challenge.

The campaign will target:

  • Prospective new employees: Research shows that 20-39 year olds who have the right values are most likely to consider a job in the sector*.
  • Existing workforce: referrals and recommendations are one of the most powerful recruitment drivers, and current staff are our most powerful sector advocates.

Key messages include:

  • Find out about the many rewarding and varied ways to make a difference when you work in social care – there are opportunities to suit every type of care professional
  • See how working in social care helps you build on the skills you have and learn new ones
  • Build a rewarding career in social care; there are many training and progression opportunities
  • Social care jobs are available near you; apply today.

Adverts will run on radio, social media, websites, Google Paid Search, outdoor posters (e.g. at bus stops). This will be supported by PR activity. All activity will point to the website www.everydayisdifferent.com

This points to DWP Find a Job and the campaign’s Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/everydayisdifferent Campaign advertising will run from mid February to early April 2019. However, the messages remain relevant all year round, so please continue to use the resources and promote the campaign.

This quick and easy quiz enables people to identify those values in themselves and see how they would be matched in adult social care. Users will be encouraged to share the tool to broaden its reach further.
